Why is Solar Water Heating a good idea?

As a home or business owner, you are no doubt always looking for ways to save as much money as possible. Heating water is often a very large part of the power bill that property owners receive every month. So how can you reduce this cost?

Solar water heating is an excellent option if you want to reduce your power bill. Just like a PV electric solar system, it uses the sun’s energy to heat your water, saving your from having to pay for power to do it. How does it do this?

Water from the bottom of the cylinder is pumped by a pump up to the solar panels. This water in the panel is then heated by the sun and flows back to the hot water cylinder. A digital controller is used to regulate the temperature by controller when the pump turns on and off. This allows the water to stay at the set temperature.
